One issue that people seek help for is allergic rhinitis. They can do a skin prick test at the clinic to see what triggers their symptoms. An array of allergens is tested including sheep wool, cat, dog, birch pollen, histamine, feather, etc. It generally takes no more than 30 minutes to find the offender. From then on, the specialists can suggest a treatment plan to reduce inflammation and clean the nasal cavities.
A common problem among patients is ear wax build-up and blockage that is often caused due to improper at-home removal. The team can look into that.
Another condition is obstructive sleep apnoea. Being one of the most prevalent sleep-related breathing disorders globally, it affects around 7.5% men and 3.2% women in Asia. The specialists at entspecialistsingapore.com will diagnose sleep apnoea by subjecting the patient to a sleep test which could be done both on-site or at home. Then, they offer remedies and tips that will improve the symptoms.
Nose bleeds are a nuisance that can be recurrent, and as such, it needs to be investigated to rule out any serious conditions. The ENT specialists will check up the person to figure out whether what is causing the issue is a ruptured vessel or something else. They will do additional tests as necessary.
